Aryan's first desk

My son's just started kindergarten which means he needs a desk of his own - typical mommy thought process :)
Looked around shops and most of them had those standard cartoons painted on the desk. I wanted something which would evolve as he grows up. So ended up getting a custom made desk made for him!


We used wall stickers (who said you can use them on walls only!!!) to do up the desk. When he outgrows ABCs can do up the desk in a brand new theme  with new stickers :) Aryan put up the stickers himself albeit with a little help ;)

And, then it was time to put up his favorite things on the desk which included his starfish n seashell collection.


I can already see the desk covered in superheroes, toy cars, and Mcdonalds toys. The ikea artwork replaced by some sports star poster...UGH!!!


Should enjoy this long as it lasts...


If you'd like to share a project you did for your kids' room, please email me at abha@thepipal.com.

Make Your Own Towel Set

The first in our "Make Your Own" series is quite a big hit with our customers. It's a win-win situation all around :)
Customers like the fact that they can select colours and motifs to create a truly personal towel set. The design and production team are happy that they don't have to come up with combinations, our customers 'design' for us :)


Here are some pictures of the wonderful combinations our customers have put together.



One of my friends remarked that her daughter was crazy about rockets - so now she could put together a space theme on pink when we add the space theme motifs. I was like WOW, we didnt think about that! Imagine a little girl astronaut...
And that got us thinking - customers could design their own quilts, sheets, cushions etc And that's where The Pipal is headed...one step at a time!
Thank you guys for all the ideas!
